The description of Cookie Jam

Match 3 games seem eternal and inexhaustible. Cookie Jam exploits the most popular representation of this type, featuring cookies as an object to match, sweet style to please you, and familiar mechanics of playing. Though it’s just another of a kind, Cookie Jam better than one might expect.

Narrative 7/10

It’s a Match 3 game with sweets; what else can be said? The first levels offer easy missions of matching certain types of cookie to remove them. Then it gets more fun, as missions start to vary. You may need to pack some sweets for selling, to remove wafers from the field (though it resembles the way we removed jelly in you-know-what-game), to keep The Gingerbread Man from climbing up to the top (hey, that’s something new), or to collect some of these Gingerbread Men.

If you match four or more cookies, they will produce some magic one that helps you to remove more of them. The way they act is quite predictable, though some of them act not the way an experienced player might suppose.

Level by level it gets more complicated. Luckily, the game offers you some power-ups right from the beginning, so at least you will learn how to use them.

If you connect your Facebook account, you’ll compete with your Facebook friends also playing Cookie Jam (if there are any; chances are you’ll encounter some). After each successful level, the game will display who you outrun in this level and suggest you share it.

Visuals 6/10

The inevitable comparison will result in Cookie Jam being a bit simpler. But it doesn’t mean it’s bad. The game is quite decently drawn, and as you play, sweet music accompanies you. Voicing is also secondary, despite Chef Panda being something fresh. Well, that’s what you might expect from a casual game that isn’t meant to stun you with visual luxury.

General Impressions 7/10

Despite being as secondary as can be, the game feels so sweet and somehow French (maybe due to Chef Panda constantly saying “C’est Bon” with recognizable pronounce and accordion playing in the background). It’s easy to control; if you have ever played any Match 3 game, you won’t have to learn anything but power-up effects. It looks basic for this type of game, but it grants compatibility with dated devices.

The game is free to play; it doesn’t even take 50 cents to take you to this candy shop. Power-ups, though, can be purchased for in-game currency that costs real money; and sometimes, when stuck, you’ll feel that urgency to purchase some of it to restore your lives immediately or to buy some help.

Your progress will be automatically saved if you connect your Facebook account. It won’t be any fun to start all over (though the first 25 or 30 levels will only take you an hour or so), but chances are you won’t ever have to.

Good

So, if you want something that’s not Candy Crush Saga, but just as sweet and familiar, Cookie Jam is exactly what you need. It’s spiced up with some innovations (though not radical), and it shares the same Match 3 mechanics and the same candy style.
